NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Michael Flomenhaft, Esq., principal of New York’s The Flomenhaft Law Firm, PLLC delivered two separate presentations at the Annual World Congress of the Society for Brain Mapping and Therapeutics (SBMT) in Los Angeles, CA. The organization has 200,000 scientists, engineers, surgeons, and physicians worldwide and is the flagship event for the SBMT. The invitation for Mr. Flomenhaft to present at this conference was based on his recognized expertise in the field of neuroscience and its applications to civil cases such as traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)/Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).
“Those of us who handle legal matters involving CRPS/RSD or other traumatically caused nervous system changes that can produce agonizing, unrelenting pain and adverse brain consequences have a heightened responsibility to share our knowledge and remain current with the science,” said Mr. Flomenhaft. “Medicine progresses gradually, but neuroscience is galloping. As neuroscience can furnish distinct and deep insights into many of the issues decided in a broad range of cases, informing the courts on neuroscience offers the possibility of a higher quality justice. To be invited and recognized by such a prestigious group offers me a special opportunity to advance that goal.”
Mr. Flomenhaft, whose law practice is centered around advocating for victims of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and severe chronic pain, took his live and virtual audience through several topics residing at the crossroads of neuroscience and law. His legal experience encompasses a wide array of medical understandings that include neuroimaging, neuropsychology, neurobiology, the neuroanatomy of brain trauma, and chronic pain, as well as the trial skills related to these subjects. His areas of expertise expand to the legal challenges posed in presenting long term consequences of concussion, chronic severe pain, spinal injuries, and the psychological consequences of trauma including Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
Mr. Flomenhaft’s initial address delved into the realms of brain trauma and chronic pain and the gulfs in understanding between physicians and neuroscientists that impact legal perception of these injuries. Entitled “Brain Injury from a Legal Point of View,” the lecture and question and answer session explored how neuroscience informs a full understanding of concussion and chronic pain while examining its role currently and potentially in related legal proceedings. His second presentation entitled “Legal Aspects of Neurotrauma” spoke to the frequent insufficiencies of medical assessments of TBI and the resulting narratives that can dictate how that injury is framed in legal proceedings.
